Publisher's Summary

Pulitzer Prize, Biography/Autobiography, 1999
Few American icons provoke more enduring fascination than Charles Lindbergh - renowned for his one-man transatlantic flight in 1927, remembered for the sorrow surrounding the kidnapping and death of his firstborn son in 1932, and reviled by many for his opposition to America's entry into World War II. Lindbergh's is "a dramatic and disturbing American story," says the Los Angeles Times Book Review, and this biography - the first to be written with unrestricted access to the Lindbergh archives and extensive interviews of his friends, colleagues, and close family members - is "the definitive account."

Needs updating

Where does Lindbergh rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Among the top.

What does Lloyd James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Yes, very much.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?


Any additional comments?

Book dated. Since writing news has surfaced about Lingergs many affairs and extramarital children, proven by DNA analysis. Three mistresses were from Gremany in 1950-1960 with four known children. He did support and regularly see some of them. This requires a reevaluation of Linbergs character and NAZI German sympathies. It is claimed he fathered many children with primitive people, believing in eugenics and his own superior genome.
